Newcastle v Liverpool: Preview
Newcastle host Liverpool this Sunday at St James Park and will be hoping that they can end their losing run with a home victory against an improving Liverpool side.
The Magpies have only won 1 of the last 7 matches against Liverpool and are having an abysmal season and so it's no surprise that bookies offer Liverpool as favourites.
Amazingly Newcastle did secure a 1-0 victory in last seasons corresponding fixture but Liverpool have won 24 of the 42 Premier League meetings between the two teams.
Newcastle have claimed 9 of their 10 wins against Liverpool at St James Park.
It's highly possible that Newcastle will struggle to beat an in-form Liverpool - especially as this fixture has historically produced a higher than average number of goals!
Newcastle's Best Odds: 17/4
If you think Newcastle can beat Liverpool, Betfair offers the best odds at 17/4.
Newcastle are having one of their worst seasons ever, having only won 2 of their 14 Premier League games to date and currently sit in 19th place on 10 points.
Alongside Bournemouth, Newcastle have the worst defensive record this season and securing a victory against Liverpool will be a hard battle for Steve McClaren’s side.
They’ve conceded 8 goals in their last 2 outings, coming into this game on the back of a 5-1 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend and 3-0 to Leicester the week before!
Newcastle's best result was a 6-2 victory against Norwich City in October, however they've conceded at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 10 Premier League games.
A long injury list simply adds to Newcastle's worries, with Krul, Taylor, Riviere, Obertan and Aarons all likely to miss Sunday’s game against Liverpool.
Already in the relegation zone, McClaren’s team really need to improve their performances or risk losing their status as a Premier League team in the 2016/17 season.
While they may be having a terrible season, Newcastle may be worth a punt, but only if you're using some of the free bets that bookies offer new account holders!

Liverpool had a disastrous start to the 2015/16 Premier League season, but are now only 4 points off fourth spot under new manager Jürgen Klopp.
The Reds beat Swansea 1-0 last weekend, beat league leaders Man City 4-1 in their previous outing, and will be confident they can beat a below par Newcastle.
Liverpool have only lost 3 games this season, sit in 6th position on 23 points, and have scored 7 goals in their last 2 Premier League games.
Jurgen Klopp has faced Steve McClaren twice, claiming victories in both games, and with bookies offering Liverpool as favourites to win it looks as if this could be his 3rd win.
There are a few players missing for Liverpool with injuries to Danny Ings, Jon Flanagan, Mamadou Sakho and Joe Gomez who've been ruled out of Sunday’s game.
It's still unclear if Coutinho will play but Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are back in contention which should boost Liverpool's attacking prowess.
